Writing Life

I don't believe that I've every written so much in a short time frame in my life. It is really a privilege to have the time to do so. That being said, I am also dealing with what I'll refer to as 'Writer's Speed Bump" (WSB Syndrome) which is less paralyzing than writer's block. It is an interesting process for me. I have to learn when to walk away, do something else or even do the same thing just with a different subject matter.

Sometimes I find that words and music just flow at the same time. Sometimes its just some music and sometimes just words or even phrases and that's it. I log everything and occasionally go over what I have logged to see if it stirs anything. It's an absolute trip the things that will wake up the left side of my brain (harder since the lobotomy).

I realized the other day that I have been a right-brained person trying to function in a left-brained world (I write with my right hand right? - got it.) for quite a few years. If I would get a therapist, I'm sure I could write this with much more elegance, but I'm too troubled to do something like that. So read and moan just the way this is.

Nothing more to add today, time to hit the speed bumps going 60.


  1. V. interesting, Bro, but I think you got the left and right backwards. This happens to right-brained persons, so I think your assessment (which right-brains never make, they only follow hunches) is . . . uh . . . groovy?

  2. Thanks sis, I'll change the post if I can remember long enought to do it. Hey, I had a 50/50 chance.

  3. What am I gonna do with you? Now your brain is "lright" - so you're covering the bases. What really impresses me about this post is that you spelled "privilege" correctly.
